About Frances Gardiner (Sanford)

Gardner married on 23 October 1720 Frances Sanford (born 13 January 1702), the daughter of John Sanford and Frances Clarke. The couple had 11 children.[5] Frances Sanford was a great granddaughter of two early Rhode Island governors. One of these was John Sanford, who served briefly as governor of the Rhode Island towns of Portsmouth and Newport, just prior to the reunification of the colony following the Coddington Commission.[6] The other great grandfather was Jeremy Clarke who served for one year as President of the colony from 1648 to 1649.[7]

Ann Gardner, the daughter of John Gardner and Frances Sanford, was married twice. Her second husband was Solomon Southwick, the publisher of the Newport Mercury and a prominent advocate for the Patriot cause in the American Revolution.[8]
